Autumn

A wistful song
for a leaf that begins to shake
against the cold
the light that begins to fade
holding, with thirst, the twilight of day
the bringer of silence
in perfect harmony
as the seasons meet
a hush of air that crawls with scattered leaves
our spirits
in balanced order,
on this night
through a crease in change

Happy Autumn Equinox!

  3. Autumn is (for me) usually so beautiful) that it is strange to be seduced by her, knowing that she is but a false herald for winter and all its ills. Your words as usual tempt me to think otherwise (for a bit). Don't be sad though I am up-side-down and for us Spring is on its way.

    'holding, with thirst, the twilight of day
    the bringer of silence
